“Gilgamesh” is a mixed genre movie that contains an unusual hybrid of Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror, exploitation, and political thriller. It has it all! Told in flashback-style, US Senator Higgins (Gannascoli) interrogates imprisoned archeologist David Murphy (Davis) in order to learn how Murphy and his wife Kristen (Blackthorne) were involved in an expedition that may have accidentally freed from her ancient prison Inanna (Coleman), the Sumerian goddess of lust and war.
Here is the multiplexing plot of “Gilgamesh”:
While Inanna plots to destroy earth using a giant meteor to collide into the planet, the American President (Morse) and his military men (Pierce, Madonnini, and Victor) hope to utilize Inanna as a weapon of mass destruction. However a violent communist take- over of the US government, led by Special Agent Lars (Chandler) and his ally Angela Kozlov (Riot), complicates the government’s goal to exploit Inanna.
As chaos ensues, the ancient god Gilgamesh (Joseph) ponders whether or not he will act as mankind’s last best hope to save humanity from its rendezvous with annihilation.
